What's the problem with the NAQT Entering Freshman Contact List? It's been helpful for me in terms of getting in contact with people at other schools.

Re: Middle School Teams Near Memphis, TN

According to http://www.naqt.com/stats/results.jsp?ms=yes there weren't any middle school tournaments this year in Tennessee, so you'll probably have to do outreach to the teams yourself. Good luck!

Sacramento now has a fairly active/growing circuit (same with San Francisco/Oakland/South Bay). Hopefully we can promote Fresno and Reno to "active" by the end of April. Bakersfield, Stockton, Modesto, Santa Rosa, and Santa Cruz will hopefully be promoted to "active" next year.

Yes, having large discounts for new teams (along with discounts for bringing a buzzer/scorekeeper, etc) are good incentives for getting new teams to play quiz bowl.
